Do I need to also add the trunk and repo directories or will they be 
created automatically? For example, I want to add babl to extra, so I do:

svn checkout -N svn+ssh://archlinux.org/home/svn-packages/
cd svn-packages
svn add babl

Is that all or does it needs other steps? I just want to make sure I get 
it right before going ahead.
